It's unanimous.

For the third time in four weeks, the Seattle Seahawks drew every first-place vote in the AP Pro32 power rankings from a nationwide panel of media members who cover the NFL. Seattle easily outdistanced Denver in Tuesday's balloting.

Last week, the Broncos received two first-place selections. But after losing to San Diego, they fell 19 points behind the Seahawks in the power poll.

"They have the look of the most-balanced team in the league at the moment — the highest scoring differential in the NFL at plus-175," said Jeff Legwold of

"The only concern the Seahawks may have the rest of the way is the weather in New York on the first weekend of February," added Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News.

San Francisco was third, followed by Kansas City and Carolina.

The Panthers face off with New Orleans, ranked seventh and down four spots, for the NFC South lead on Sunday in Carolina.

"Better find a way to win on the road vs. Carolina this week or it will be a short playoff run," NBC Sports' Tony Dungy said of the Saints.

"You don't want to play this team in the first round of the playoffs," ESPN's Herm Edwards said of the Panthers.

Several other division leaders also dropped after losses. New England fell from fourth to sixth; Philadelphia from ninth to 13th; and Detroit from 14th to 17th.
